Omar Tosatto graduated in Civil Engineering in 2005 with final grades 110/110 “summa cum laude” developing a thesis relating to modeling subsurface hydrology in lagoon environments for which he won the national award in memory of professor Giuseppe Bendoricchio. In 2009 he was awarded a PhD in Civil and Environmental Engineering Sciences, specializing in Hydrology at the University of Padua.
During the PhD and in the course of his academic activity he was mainly involved in environmental modeling problems such as simulation of subsurface hydrological processes in tidal areas, application and development of mono/multi-phase numerical models to be applied both to the interaction between unsaturated flow and vegetation of the natural environments and to the extensive use of environmental monitoring instrumentation and automated data collection. From 2009 to 2012 he has carried out a professional activity dealing with issues related to modeling and design of hydraulic works. In 2012 he joined the team of M3E.
He has authored or co-authored scientific articles, published in international journals, and proceedings of national and international conferences on hydrological or modeling themes.
